Match Preview

Hornets wait on Jenkins Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins is a doubt to face Barnsley. Jenkins turned his ankle during the first half of the 2-2 draw at Leeds last weekend and is still struggling so on-loan Manchester United product Danny Drinkwater could be handed a rare start. Young winger Matty Whichelow is out with an ankle injury sustained in a reserve match while defender Tom Aldred also picked up a head injury in the same game. Winger Michael Bryan is back from his ankle injury and played in the reserves so could feature in the squad. Midfielder Stephen McGinn is a long-term absentee with a serious knee injury as Malky Mackay's men look for a win to keep their faint play-off hopes alive. Barnsley boss Mark Robins will recall Stephen Foster to the starting line-up. Foster will return to the heart of the Tykes defence to cover the absence of Paul McShane, who has returned to parent club Hull after his loan spell at Oakwell expired. Robins has no new injury or suspension problems, with versatile defender Bobby Hassell in contention after missing the last three games with calf and ankle ligament trouble. Argentine midfielder Hugo Colace is also available having sat out the last two matches with a leg injury, while young striker Reuben Noble-Lazarus could be recalled to the squad after overcoming the illness which forced him out of last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough. Defender Luke Potter remains sidelined with a knee problem that has kept him out since November and Alastair Taylor is also out with an unspecified injury.

Match Report

Eustace hands Hornets win Watford captain John Eustace scored the winner after just 43 seconds to keep their faint promotion hopes alive with an npower Championship win over Barnsley. Eustace hit the only goal in a poor game which leaves Malky Mackay's men five points behind the top six with nine points to play for. Barnsley turned in a performance typical of a side with nothing to play for and struggled to make any impact throughout. The Hornets kicked off knowing that they would probably have to win all four of their remaining games to stand a chance of sneaking into the play-offs and their urgency was rewarded as they took the lead in less than a minute. Don Cowie delivered a corner from the right and after Troy Deeney hit the crossbar with a powerful header, Eustace was on hand to prod in from point blank range. Luke Steele had to save another Eustace header as the hosts made a flying start before Matt Hill flashed a header wide at the other end. Barnsley had done well to contain top scorer Danny Graham during the opening exchanges, and when he did find space to fire in a decent effort defender Kieran Trippier made a brave block. The Tykes were failing to deal with Cowie's corners however and from another fine ball in Deeney volleyed wide. Graham then chipped in a cross for strike partner Marvin Sordell just before the break but the youngster headed over the top. Barnsley made a change during the interval as Marlon Harewood was replaced by Reuben Noble-Lazarus but it was Watford full-back Lloyd Doyley who had the first effort when he skidded a shot wide. Deeney then wasted another decent opening when he fluffed Piero Mingoia's pass into the arms of Steele before Noble-Lazarus finally tested Scott Loach in the Watford goal with a 25-yard drive. Jacob Butterfield saw a corner fired over the top by Bobby Hassell as the visitors mounted some late resistance. Loach was again in action moments later to kick away an effort from Danny Haynes before Watford substitute Andreas Weimann ran clear but hit his effort across the face of goal. Watford held out to claim the points and head to Leicester on Monday with their season still alive. However, with games against champions-elect QPR and strugglers Preston to come after that Mackay's side's chances of gatecrashing the top six remain slim.
